Energy Reporters | Ireland set to benefit from French interconnector: study

Conall Bolger comments on the confirmed plans of the 700MW Celtic Interconnector in Energy Reporters. He explained that the link between Ireland and France could boost efficiency.

Our research showed that had an interconnector been in place, flows would predominantly have been from France to Ireland.  This effect was more likely during the winter months, a period of traditionally higher demand and pricing in Ireland when the additional power would be welcome.

In reality, the flows will be more complicated than this model suggests as the physical limits of the infrastructure play an essential role,” Bolger added.
